PHOTOS: Scenes From Friday’s “Empty Bowls” Lunch For Highline Food Bank
On Friday afternoon (Jan. 29th), the first of two rounds of Burienâ€™s annual â€œEmpty Bowlsâ€ fundraiser for the Highline Area Food Bank was served.
For just $10, visitors received a full meal of soup made by various local restaurants and served in one-of-a-kind bowls handcrafted by area Potters, along with bread, cookies and a drink. There was also a dinner served between 4pm and 8pm.
When we visited for dinner, Highline Food Bank Executive Director Mike Werle told us that the lunch crowd was “a record,” in the neighborhood of 470 or so guests. As the dinner crowds wandered in, Werle assured us that the evening group would be another record.
BTB Photographer Michael Brunk dropped by for lunch and captured these photos:
We’ll be posting the total numbers from this fundraiser, along with more photos soon, so stay tuned to The B-Town Blog!
